Actress Kristin Chenoweth stands just shy of 5-feet tall, but she is larger-than-life onstage.

Chenoweth, famous for her role as Glinda the Good Witch in the Broadway hit “Wicked,” won a Tony Award for playing Sally in “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown.”

Lois Reitzes last spoke with Kristin in 2015 after she had won multiple awards for her role in Roundabout Theatre Company’s “On the Twentieth Century.” Chenoweth will perform in Atlanta again at the Cobb Energy Center Friday evening.

Reitzes spoke with Kristin by phone ahead of her performance to see what she’s bringing to the stage on this tour.
